Frantic Times Radio Logs

This is very much an ongoing project -- trying to get a complete set of radio logs for the Frantic Times radio series. Much of what follows is derived (admittedly second-hand) from date information from the original CBC open reel tapes containing the shows. Unfortunately, only the month and year of the show was recorded (if that), leaving the broadcast dates for a number of shows in some doubt (especially for those of seasons three and four). Thankfully the tapes were also numbered, with two shows recorded per tape. It does seem that sometimes the "second" show on the tape was sometime the first to be played, so some of the dates listed below may be off by a week in some circumstances (and hopefully not more than that! ;-) So what follows is my best reconstruction for what is the most likely original air dates for the shows.

Also note that the names given for the shows and individual skits are the names I have given them -- they should not be construed as being "official". I have done my best to provide descriptive names for the skits to help those fans who do have tapes to better identify what they have. The titles I've provided for the shows are usually what I thought was the "showcase" skit for that show.

If you happened to have taped the show when it was originally aired (like me) and then dated them (unlike me), please email me with your info!

(And before you ask, yes, I do have copies of all of the recordings listed below. ;-)

    4th Season

    June 25 1983(?) - June 29 1985

    Get their own time slot after Basic Black on Saturday afternoon. The show is played continuously at this time, with occasional repeats. The dates are definitely odd in this listing, supposedly beginning before the air dates in June -- perhaps the date information on the tapes are now referring to recording dates? The repeats during this season make it nearly impossible to tie down exact broadcast dates -- what dates appear here are those originally written down on the master tapes.

    "Fran of the Fundy"

    December 19 1987 - January 2 1988
    Special 3 Part Series - A Spoof of Anne of Green Gables.
    Originally broadcast as a holiday special around Xmastime 1987, the series deals with fictional New Brunswick Premier Buddy Wentworth and his quest to create Fran of the Fundy -- a New Brunswick alternative to Anne of Green Gables. All of this while trying to win a provincial election, a caucus that betrays him, and battling his own personal demons in overcoming the evil Anne. A truly warped short series that along the way takes a swipe at various Canadian cultural icons. (A good piece written immediately prior to this series can be found on the clippings page).

    "The Frantics Look at History"

    September 1 - October 20 1988
    Special 8 Part Series
    This eight-part special series comprises what is arguably The Frantics' best work. Inventive and very funny, this series looks at the whole of history as seen through the eyes of Jimmy & Barney, two guys sitting at some anonymous local bar with East-coast accents who have "been there" and seen it all. The series runs from the age of the dinosaurs to the future, covering everything from the plight of a two-brained Diplodocus dinosaur having an argument with itself to a couple of Visigoths trying to explain to a Roman why they are sacking Rome, to a future Star Trek-inspired "Church of Kirk". Sadly, it is also the very last Frantics series that involved all four members of the comedy troupe.

    This show features guest star Brian Moffat from The Norm, which was the comedy show that replaced Frantic Times.

    "Those People Across the Street"

    July -August 1989
    This special summer-replacement series starred Rick Green and Peter Wildman as two long-time friends and neighbours who deal with various situations that face them. Unlike Frantic Times this show took a single story and ran with it -- much like a sitcom -- instead of the more typical sketch comedy. Arguably one of the most consistently funny of the post-Frantic Times radios shows done by members from the original troupe.

    While this could have been a six-part series, chances are that it may have been a 7-part or longer series. If you happen to have any of the missing episodes and would be willing to trade, please let me know!

    This series is one of the few occasions where I can post the "official" title for the show, since it was announced at the beginning of each show.

    "The Freezer" - July 8 1989

    "Death by Weed-Whacker" - July 15 1989

    "Somebody's Having a Baby" - July 22 1989

    "The Robbery" - July 29 1989

    "No Pain, No Gain" - August 5 1989

    "Peter's Number Comes Up" - August 12 1989

    "Growing Up and Having Babies"

    Summer 1991[?]
    Special 6 Part Series, broadcast at 11:30am on Saturdays
    Another special summer-replacement series which again paired up Rick Green and Peter Wildman, this time as two friends who go through puberty together, marry and have kids. At the beginning of each show, the series was described as "The story of Rick and Peter chasing girls, getting married and raising kids. An odyssey from the suburbs to the singles-bars and back to the suburbs". This show was a return to the sketch comedy format typical of the "Frantic Times" shows.

    This series is another one of those few occasions where I can post the "official" title for the show, since it was announced at the start of each episode.

    This would be the final radio series done by members of the Frantics troupe until the advent Dan Redican's "Mr. Interesting" series 8 years later.
